to hear marco rubio, paul ryan, eric cantor, land, and others, taking up difficult issues, sharing republican ideas on how to fight inequity in this country, a problem that has gotten worse under the democrat leadership of this administration. they each have their own approaches. but at the end of the day, expanding opportunity is always the focus. and that is the way we will stand together as republicans. this issue of income inequality is best addressed by ensuring equal opportunity for everyone in this country. the president is now preparing speeches on income inequality. i believe he should give those speeches while standing in front of the mirror. because under his watch, everything has gotten worse. he should talk to himself. because poverty is worse. food stamp dependency is worse. and more people have given up looking for work under barack obama's watch than at any time i can remember. when the federal government tries to equalize outcomes, we are all going to end up equally worse off. but when we make sure people have equal opportunities and education, and a job market, an

to the house floor that was mentioned by eric cantor this week's march for life. what's that about? >> he promised this in the event you watched all day on wednesday, the march for life. he said there will be an abortion vote next week and it's a vote we saw before in 2011 they passed a very similar bill that cod fizz current law that changes over every year that says no federal funds can be used for abortion. this is a ride thear shows up on the spending bill. it has some twists this year it has some obamacare language in it. what obamacare does is says if you have a low enough income and qualify for a certain federal subsidies to buy a health insurance plan you won't get those -- rather, you get those subsidies. under the bill of next week you won't get the subsidies if it became law. so that's one of the ways the republicans are continuing to attack. >> could this be dicey in terms of leadership getting the bill passed? >> i'm not aware yet that it's coming as a suspension yet. it passed in the last congress about 16 democrats that we want with republicans. so it probably can't pass as

? >> it didn't die but you now have eric cantor and paul ryan both delivering speeches talking about this issue. it's an important issue for republicans to engage in. what they have to make the case about is this is not just about income mobility and inequality. it's about building skills and productivity so that people can move from those bottom rungs and stay elevated, not by taking from one and giving to the other but by building the skills so they can get better jobs, g employed and own their own businesses. and when president obama, and i'm confident he will in his state of the union, give his remarks and addresses income mobility and disparity, it's important that the republicans kind of remind people of the facts embodied in these two recent studies. and the fact that they think this is a real issue but the answer is not redistribution. the answer is building skills through, yes, better education, better access to education, better access to capital, helping people to build the skills so they can be employed and earn more. >> peter, i want to put up this poll about how americans think th
